CRIPPER Premier Official Music Video For “Mother”

This Friday, September 15th, Germany's Cripper will release their new album, Follow Me: Kill!, worldwide via Metal Blade Records. A video for “Mother” is available for streaming below, and the record can be pre-ordered at Metal Blade in the following formats:

- Digipak CD (EU exclusive)

Cripper comment on the “Mother” video: "Choosing the third single from Follow Me: Kill! was very easy for us. 'Mother' marks one of the album's backbones but can also stand on its own. The song speaks its own distinct, gloomy and heavy language, which we transported into the video. The result is a dark and very personal piece that visually translates 'Mother'. Within the context of the previous singles 'Pressure' and 'Into The Fire', this one gives you a hint at the full spectrum of Follow Me; Kill!."

Follow Me: Kill! is Cripper's fifth album, and it adds fresh, exciting elements into their music. Still, the band never forgets where they come from and stay true to themselves within the frames of musical progression. The result is an effort that maintains the heaviness and groove the band is known for, while also containing atmospheric parts, capably realized and granting diversity.

Cripper comments: "Taking a different approach with the way of songwriting this time really paid off! The overall atmospheric curve was laid down for the whole album before we even started writing. It turned out to be a great idea - we were able to create a strong density throughout the album, while the songs are more diverse than ever. A heavy, intense piece of genre-stretching metal music!"
